The production of this aircraft was initiated in conjunction with the model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II, moreover, were developing independently from each other on a common base model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I, became the first in a family of light-engine aircraft. A distinctive feature of the model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III and Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II is the location of seats in the cabin, while, in the version of Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III due to the increased space at the rear of the aircraft, the opportunity to take on board a number of payload, particularly , to the greatest extent we are talking about the luggage, since the aircraft has established itself increasingly in the private exploitation than as a sports aircraft.

The fuselage of the aircraft has been further enhanced, due to which the weight of the aircraft increased, however, due to this, on board Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III could take more cargo, and in addition, it has also contributed to enhanced safety during flight at high speeds.
As compared with the models Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair I и Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II, This aircraft has greatly increased the speed of movement, however, in comparison with the version of the Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair II reduced the maximum flight distance due to the installation of the fuel tanks of smaller volume.

As the power plant in the plane model Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III air-cooled six-cylinder uses a piston aircraft engine Lycoming IO-540-K1H5, capable of developing power 300 hp The maximum flight speed of the aircraft reaches 467 km \ h., Which greatly superior to other models of light-engine aircraft of this type. Among other things, thanks to the powerful engine, the aircraft is free to overcome the distance to 2092 kilometers that satisfies most customer requirements.
Among other things, Stoddard-Hamilton Glasair III can also be used to train future pilots, which largely contributes to the presence here of the paired control, however, due to the fact that the aircraft accelerates to high speeds, the aircraft is a model flying schools hardly exploited.
Over the entire period of production from the middle of the year 1989 2014 years 402 was built aircraft of this version, in this case, due to the existing demand, the issue continues to this day.
